Hampton Golf Village Course Review
The Clyde Johnston designed layout offers rolling fairways, wetlands areas and a challenge, particularly for players who have problems getting their tee shots airborn. Several tee shots require carries of close to 200 yards from the blue tees to either reach the fairway or clear a hazard, with the white tees still a solid test although 450 yards shorter. The hilly terrain keeps things interesting from tee to green, with the course in excellent condition for its opening. Distance is a factor on a handful of stout par 4s, particularly the punishing 18th, but the par 3s are on the tame side and there is mininal trouble around the greens, the 18th one of the exceptions.
The white tees still a solid test although 450 yards shorter. but the fairways are of relatively generous width and there is not a great deal of water in play despite proximity to Lake Lanier. Distance is a factor on a quartet of stout par 4s, particularly the punishing 18th.The par 3s are on the tame side and other than some ever-present mounds, there is minimal trouble around the greens, the 18th one of the exceptions.
A par 71 with five par 3s, Hampton Village is rated as one of the tougher courses in the Atlanta area, with the four par 4s accounting for much of the difficulty, along with the long, par-5 fifth, which has wetlands areas that must be avoided along the way. Hampton Village is one of those courses where the choice of which tees to play will go a long way to deciding what you shoot and how much you enjoy your round.
